Community Lutheran Church presents annual Easter Cantata

An annual tradition, Community Lutheran Church presents its Easter Cantata and program of Lenten music in two performances:  Palm Sunday, April 14, 3:00 p.m. and again on Good Friday evening, April 19, 7:00 p.m.  The Cantata theme is “Come to the Cross and Remember,” with its captivating instrumental score and narrative by composer Pepper Choplin.

Audiences who have attended past Community Lutheran Church Cantatas at Christmas and Easter, and are familiar with Choplin’s music, can expect the same inspiring combination of sparkle, passion, reflection and joy in this year’s offering, presented by the Cantata Choir, a blending of church choir members and singers from the former Voices of the River Community Choir.  This year, in a unique choral experience, church Director of Music Dean Leuthauser is also joined by guest conductors Shawn Bristle and Karl Thompson.

The full Lenten program, produced by Leuthauser, also includes women’s and men’s choruses, violin solo, visual symbols of the Passion Story and hymns sung by the congregation.

For people who often bemoan the seriousness that signifies worship and music during the Season of Lent, Community Lutheran Church Pastor Tim Eighmy reflects: “It’s like blues music – music I absolutely love!  Blues music is all about suffering, hardship, betrayal and guilt. And yet the rhythm is soothing; the harmonies are filled with love.”  He adds: “Throughout the 40 days of Lent, we will be ‘singing the blues,’ but when Easter Day comes, we will again rock our worship with the praise of Christ’s salvation.”  So it is with the Cantata.

Community Lutheran Church is located at 2275 Ricca Road, Bullhead City, between North Oatman Road and upper Riverview Drive. Admission to the Cantata is free. For more information contact the church office: 928-763-2422 or Peggy Boone, 928-727-4171.
